Browse a Christian book website or bookstore and notice all there is for leaders and would-be leaders. We are inundated with studies of leaders, keys to leadership, and tips on becoming a leader. But how many books inspire us simply to serve one another? How many books involving servanthood are not tied to leadership and basically about leadership?
The appeal of leadership has hijacked the biblical call to servanthood. As a result, we major on a role that will only ever be held by a few, and we largely ignore a role that ought to be held by every Christian. What ever happened to servanthood?
Servanthood as Worship offers Christians a biblical understanding of their calling to serve in the local church, motivated by the grace that is ours in the gospel. It has the potential to revitalize service teams in churches across the world, from brand new church plants to long-established congregations.

How can you break the cycle of the weak and dysfunctional church to build the Kingdom of God in His image?
The drama of man has always been a family matter, and likewise God’s image has always been our model. It’s past time to return to God’s blueprint for the Church and Missions and recapture our identity as sons and daughters — a family.
Whether you’re called to go or called to stay, we are ALL part of one body and one family. This book is a thought-provoking and challenging examination of the significance and restoration of God’s heart for the family and its relationship to the local church and global mission.
In The Church in His Image, John has put the missing pieces together to make missions work both with the senders in the church and on the goers on the mission field. His contagious passion for effective missions fills every page. In this book, you’ll find a call for churches to further develop authentic Christian community and family, which is the foundation for a catalytic culture of a missions movement.
Haunted by the horrors of war, ex-cavalry officer Matthew Hanger leads a band of mercenaries known as Hanger’s Horsemen who have become legends in 1890s Texas. They defend the innocent and obtain justice for the oppressed. But when a rustler’s bullet leaves one of them at death’s door, they’re the ones in need of saving.
Dr. Josephine Burkett is used to men taking one look at her skirts and discounting her medical skills. What she’s not used to is having a man change his mind in a heartbeat and offer to assist her in surgery. Matthew Hanger’s dedication to his friend during recovery earns Josephine’s respect, and when she hears of her brother’s abduction, he becomes her only hope for rescue.
Matt has stared down ruthless outlaws, betrayal, and injury, but when a bossy lady doctor crawls under his skin, his heart is tempted to surrender. And when she is caught in the crossfire, he may have to sacrifice everything–even his team–to save her.
The New York Times bestseller and definitive history of Christianity for our time—from the award-winning author of The Reformation and Silence
A product of electrifying scholarship conveyed with commanding skill, Diarmaid MacCulloch’s Christianity goes back to the origins of the Hebrew Bible and encompasses the globe.

Bursting with original insights and a great pleasure to read, this monumental religious history will not soon be surpassed.
